By Dave Harrison
Sept. 17, 2015, St. Catharines, Ont. — Canadian Business and PROFIT today ranked Stärke Material Handling Group No. 441 on the 27th annual PROFIT 500, the definitive ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies.
Published in the October issue of Canadian Business and at PROFITguide.com, the PROFIT 500 ranks Canadian businesses by their five-year revenue growth.
Stärke Material Handling Group made the 2015 PROFIT 500 list with a substantial five-year revenue growth.
“The PROFIT 500 represent the highest tier of entrepreneurialism in Canada,” says James Cowan, editor-in-chief of PROFIT and Canadian Business.
“They should be lauded for the positive economic contributions they’ve made to their communities – and the entire country. They are examples of what can be accomplished with innovation, discipline and determination.”
It’s all about team work, says Jim Chesla, vice-president of sales and business development. “This achievement reflects the hard work and dedication of our team and dealer networks. It also shows the strength of our product in markets that appreciate peace of mind at a fair price.”
Stärke Material Handling Group is a Canadian-owned and operated company manufacturing forklifts, lift trucks, electric utility vehicles and material handling equipment. Chesla says Stärke’s moto says a lot about who they are – and what they represent: “Because it makes sense to expect peace of mind at a fair price.”
